Sarah Farris, co-owner of Paducah's Smudge art studio, glues sequins to Minnie Mouse ears with Kaeliegh Bryan, 10, of Murray, at one of the many craft tables set up at Kaeliegh's coming home party Saturday morning at Smudge. Kaeliegh recently returned home from a trip to Disney World, a wish granted by Make-a-Wish in collaboration with the Wells Fargo Foundation. Kaeliegh was born with nine heart defects that led to a heart transplant at age 31/2 months at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta-Egleston Hospital. Since then, she has been in and out of medical care and maintains a positive attitude. Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana is a non-profit organization that grants wishes for children battling critical illnesses. Kaeliegh's wish allowed her to visit all five parks in Florida's Disney World from Dec 17-23. She said her favorite part was SeaWorld.
